CASE COST 360 – The SOLUTION

Case Cost 360 is comprised of three MHS core components:

CaseCart Mobile Software

  • Aligns preference card requirements with the case cart picking process as well as the dispensing and return of product.
  • Integrates with multiple information systems.
  • Automates order process for maximum efficiency.

Point-Of-Use Mobile Software

  • Providers use a touch screen or a scanner in the OR to match a specific patient with items utilized for dispensing and billing.
  • Software captures:
  • Routine Supplies
  • ROOM STOCK
  • CONSIGNMENT PRODUCTS
  • BILL-ONLY ITEM WORKFLOW
  • INSTRUMENT PACKS
  • add-on products

Case Cost 360 Analytics Software

  • Sophisticated algorithms built by MHS analyze the comprehensive procedural data being captured.
  • Results delivered to a “workbench” that lets users graphically visualize insights.
  • Easily interrogate and manipulate the data to refine understanding.

CASE COST 360 – The benefits

Spending associated with surgical procedures is significant. No wonder that interest is high in seeking profit improvement in this area.

Case Cost 360’s detailed procedural cost tracking and variance analysis provides the necessary foundation of evidence that management needs to find cost reduction and enhanced profitability by attacking the various levels of the value pyramid:

Preference Card Optimization

  • Aligns physician preference cards with current usage reality.
  • Case Cost 360 recommends adds, drops, and shifts of items between open and hold status.
  • Promotes significant reductions in waste, loss from expired product, OR nurse and tech time, and surgery delays.
  • Ongoing tracking tool that keeps your cards accurate and up to date.

Product Standardization

  • Robust comparative variance analysis and benchmarking to standardize products and processes across your physician population.
  • Focuses on cost variation in at least three categories:
  • PREFERENCE CARD ITEMS
  • IMPLANTS
  • PHYSICIAN PREFERENCE ITEMS NOT ON CARDS
  • Integrate patient severity data to assess standardization opportunities appropriately.

Case Level Profit and Loss

  • Construct a true case P&L via complete surgical cost data tracking.
  • Integrate revenue cycle and clinical data for complete P&L context.

 

LET CASE COST 360 HELP YOU:
Achieve permanent cost base reductions
Reduce costly practice variation
Keep preference cards current
Drive process change through evidence, not anecdote
Break down Operating Room/Supply Chain information silos
Enhance procedural care quality & safety

What it is

CASE COST 360 – WHAT IT IS

Case Cost 360 software captures and analyzes perioperative costs in ways not currently available in a single system.  More than a business intelligence reporting tool, it tracks complete, granular resource utilization in real-time:

  • At the individual procedure level
  • At the individual physician level
  • Throughout the surgical workflow – including point of use

Case Cost 360 produces detailed variance analysis that provides insights necessary to guide decisions that optimize surgical profitability: a true Clinical Operations Decision Support solution. The power of this decision support derives from Case Cost 360 delivering data that adheres to four fundamental, essential requirements:
 

GRANULAR

Must be gathered at the per-procedure, per-physician level.

TIMELY

Captured near real-time in a streamlined, efficient way that does not burden OR staff or unduly interfere with surgical workflow.

COMPREHENSIVE

Across multiple dimensions: medical specialties, types of procedures, and relevant cost inputs.

CONSISTENTLY ACCURATE

Automated capture with reliance on standardized coding structure such as ICD-10 and UNSPSC.
